    Located just a 10-minute walk from JR Kyoto Station, the hotel is situated between Nishi Hongan-ji and Higashi Hongan-ji, two temples and UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Its aim is to offer guests a place to dive deep into Kyoto’s traditions and culture in a space that puts great focus on its interior design.


    The design is built around themes of ‘light and shadow,’ ‘distance,’ and ‘gloss’ which expresses the notion of depth. The lattice windows and sliding doors pour in natural light, and the single boulder makes one think of being in a garden. It’s a design to tickle the senses and imagination which in turn lets guests feel the depth of culture and being deep within the space.

    The hotel has its own cafe/bar fusion called ‘cafe&bar oku’ which serves food and drinks from a range of Kyoto restaurants and cafes such Kyoto-style meicha tea from Ippodo Chaho, a tea shop that first established back in 1717, as well as a traditional Japanese breakfast rice porridge called okaisan made using Hachidai Megihei rice, and more.
